Memorandum in Strong Opposition - S.6453-C (Parker) / A.1466-D (Carroll)

We strongly oppose S.6453-C (Parker) / A.1466-D (Carroll). This legislation would, among other provisions, significantly expand the New York Power Authority’s (NYPA) ability to acquire, develop, own, and operate existing and new renewable electric generating facilities and energy storage in this State. The bill is unnecessary and would undermine the current, successful model, which relies on renewable energy and energy storage companies - big and small - to develop these projects to meet New York's energy goals and the requirements of the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA) and to grow the State’s clean energy economy. The legislation also would not provide revenues to local communities, as NYPA does not pay taxes.

Memorandum in Strong Opposition - S.9426 (Parker) / A.10484 (Cusick)

We strongly oppose S.9426 (Parker) / A.10484 (Cusick). This bill would allow utility ownership of renewable generation, in contravention of over 25 years of New York State energy policy that shields electricity ratepayers from the risk of project development. Re-exposing ratepayers to this risk is not in the public interest, especially given already rising energy costs.
